Hmmm, I only got 1 hose going onto my intake pipe. I didn't know there was a second one. Then again, they keep changing some stuff on the engine on every year model.
It turns out the 2.5L engines have that extra line going in at the top. Also, as a bit of trivia, their throttle bodies are a good half-inch bigger in diameter than the 2.7L TBs . . . and they have two butterfly valves inside.

The filter is located in the wheel well behind the fog light and inside the splash shield. There is a hole there that goes to the resonator and is the perfect size to allow for some intake piping and a filter to be run there

after I remove the stock piping, there is this big black box directly underneath the hole and I looked at it, and it looked as if there are sensors and stuff running into it. what is it?

Thanks guys. I tried making mine out of 90* galvanized steel crap I found in the heating section. I electrocuted my self twice when I tried to see if the filter was really sucking air. I ended up tearing everythign out and puttign the stock back in because I had work. One time the metal was touching the distributor cap i think and the other time it was touching the battery. could any of this cause that? my hand was numb twice for about 10 minutes each. I guess I should have forked out the extra dollar for pvc . what is the resonator for and when unhooking the vaccum lines, where exactly should it be unhooked, on the resonator or the connections on the lines? Thanks. Ive learned alot about my car in the last month or so ive been on this site.

Most of us just have an open filter...although constructing a cold air box would take some thinking but I cant imagine it being too hard...

Anyhow, I personally have an AEM dryflow filter with the AEM bypass valve...been good to me so far (going on at leasta year and a half I think)...

The resonator is located in the driver's side wheel well after removing the plastic splash shield...you remove it, plug up the vacuum lines (if any) and your filter will feed into the piping through the hole that the top of the resonator used to use...

Also, those black dealies are simply rubber couplings...you can get them at any hardware store really...but I'd recommend going with silicone...
